Elon Musk confirmed Twitter employees secretly sold verification badges for upwards of $15,000.
Under Elon Musk, getting a verification badge will be much easier.
For just $7.99 subscribers of Twitter Blue will receive a verification badge.
That’s a lot more affordable than $15,000.
Twitter employees were selling verification for upwards of $15,000. For certain accounts, mine included, they would refuse to verify you through the standard application and then privately offer to verify you for $$ behind the scenes.
